Overseer's Report. 



According to custom we herewith submit the Annual Re- 
port of the Pauper Department. There is little change to 
note at the Almshouse. It is now, as for years past, under 
the charge of Superintendent Allen and his assistants ; and 
we will only say that, as far as this establishment is con- 
cerned, it is one with which the citizens of Andover may 
well be pleased. 

The steam and water works give perfect satisfaction, and 
are of great value to the house. There has been very little 
sickness there the present year ; and only three deaths, and 
all of those of persons over eighty years of age. 

The outside relief has been very much more than we 
anticipated or asked for at the beginning of the year ; the 
insane asylum bills alone being over 81700. Therefore we 
have been obliged to exceed our appropriation over $900. 
About $300 of this amount was for bills contracted in 1885, 
but not presented for payment in time to come into last 
year's account. All bills for the insane have been paid to 
January 1, 1887. Of the amount paid, 1500 will be reim- 
bursed by other cities and towns. 

An appropriation of $3500 will be required for the ensuing 
year.

Report of the Chief Engineer 



Fire Department. 



To the Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen, — In accordance with the Regulations of the 
Fire Department I submit the following Report. 

The force of the Department consists of five Engineers, 
sixteen members of Andover Steamer No. 1, sixteen members 
of J. P. Bradlee Steamer No. 2, and ten members of B. F. 
Smith Hook and Ladder company. 

The apparatus consists of one third-class steam fire-engine, 
one sixth-class steam fire-engine, one hand-engine, with hose- 
carriages for each : also a one horse hose-carriage. There is 
at each house a supply of hooks, ladders, ropes, etc. We 
have about four thousand and four hundred feet of hose. 

There has been added to the Department the past year 
one sixth-class steam fire-engine. 

There have been seven alarms of fire during the year, as 
follows : 

Jan. 15, 1886. Alex. Lamont, house. 
Jan. 17, 1886. Mrs. Jeremiah Goldsmith, hous 
shed, and barn. Insurance paid on same and 
contents, 83550 00 

Fel>. 28, 1886. Christ Church. Insurance paid, 6000 00 
April 10, 1886. Pemberton Mill, Lawrence ; to 
which the men and steamer responded and 
rendered good service. 

8 



58 

April 26, 1886. Brush fire in west part of Town. 
Sept. 28, 1886. Craighead and Kintz Manufac- 
turing Co. 
Oct. 7, 1885. J. P. Bradlee Mills. Insurance paid. 

The supply of water has been materially increased the past 
year, and as far as it reaches gives ample supply, with a 
natural pressure of about twenty-eight pounds. But we 
hope the Town will see the necessity of extending the system 
this current year, in accordance with the recommendation of 
the Water Committee. 

There has been some extra expense on Andover Engine, 
such as new pump, broken piston-rod, and new piping, 
which entailed an outlay of about three hundred dollars. 
Consequently there are some outstanding bills against the 
Fire Department. 

I would recommend that $2500 be appropriated for the 
running expenses of the Fire Department the ensuing year.

Report of Cemetery Committee. 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, with statement of receipts and expenditures for the 
year ending February 7th, 1887. 

There has been built in continuation twenty rods of face 
wall on the south-westerly side of the premises, and over 
twelve hundred loads of gravel removed. The walks and 
avenues have been cleaned. 

No wood has been sold during the past year. Nine burial 
lots have been disposed of during the year. 

The face wall needs to be extended, and other improve- 
ments made to keep this public repository of the Town in 
keeping w r ith good taste, and in conformity with public 
sentiment. 

We therefore respectfully ask for the usual appropriation 
of $300, together with the proceeds of such sales as may be 
made from the premises during the ensuing year.

Fifteenth Annual Report 



Trustees of Memorial Hall 



Since our last report Mr. John Smith, the original pro- 
jector and founder of Memorial Hall, has passed away from 
this world, full of years. This is not the place to speak at 
length of him whom all have delighted to honor. His be- 
nevolent thoughts and actions are too well known to need 
rehearsing. But it is the privilege of the Trustees to speak 
of the peculiar satisfaction with which they have received 
and hung in Memorial Hall a life-like portrait of its worthy 
benefactor. At a meeting of the Town, held May 3d, 1886, 
a communication from Mr. Joseph W. Smith made known 
the following item in the will of his father : " I give and 
bequeath my portrait, to be presented by my executors, 
framed, to the inhabitants of Andover, as a token of my 
abiding interest in the town of my adoption." After some 
remarks, expressing the Town's high appreciation both of the 
gift and the giver, from the Rev. Charles Smith and others, 
it was voted that the portrait be accepted and placed in the 
Memorial Hall, under the care of the Trustees of that 
building. The picture, which is a most excellent work, 
painted a few years ago by Mr. Edgar Parker of Boston, was 
hung by the Trustees in the upper hall, on May 19th, the 
ninetieth anniversary of Mr. Smith's birth-day. 

Another most appropriate gift has been received since our 
last report from Mr. George W. W. Dove. It consists of 



forty framed sketches, giving the actualities of campaign life 
in the War of the Rebellion. They are by an artist who had 
a keen feeling for the real, if sometimes unromantic, side of 
that which he drew. They are already in the possession of 
the Trustees, and as soon as the standards necessary for their 
exhibition are finished, they will be placed in the upper hall. 
A more valuable and interesting contribution to the history 
of the great struggle which our hall commemorates could 
hardly have been made. 

The annual examination of the building and library have 
shown both to be in good order. Insurance for the usual 
time has been renewed this year.
